In the heart of the former Charleston Naval Shipyard lies a working lab which houses the H.L. Hunley, a Civil War submarine. The shipyard itself is quite a wonder, having been decommissioned twenty years ago. There are some private businesses that continue here, but many...More

Fascinating tour showing the ongoing work to completely salvage the CSS Hunley. Amazing progress has been made, but there are thousands of hours of work and research to be done. The art and science of undersea archeaology is clearly still developing.

Please see my review under the subject, H. L. Hunley Confererate Civil War submarine. It's well worth the visit, and reservations might be necessary depending on the time or day.

Interesting visit and interesting to learn about the H.L. Hunley. Lots of exhibits. The only thing is that you cannot see the Hunley. It's submerged in a vat of caustic fluid. You look at it from above, but with the glass doors you can't even...More
